Marrying a Purdy pole to a Wooster frame


Is there any way to attach a Purdy Pro Extra pole to a Wooster Sherlock Wide Boy frame? Any adapter or fitting available? I didnt realize that the two would not go together when I bought them.

If there is no solution, I'll have the trouble of returning the pole. I would prefer to use the Wide Boy frame.

I am going to use 18" rollers.

I don't think so. They intentionally make them non compatible. But get the Wooster. The whole Sherlock system is the best.

Thanks. I thought as much. I ordered the Wooster pole and am returning the Purdy.

There is an adaptor. It should also thread into the bottom of your roller pole for when you are not using it.

True- but it turns it into another threaded pole which looses the whole reason to get a good system- non turning connection.

I agree. Those lock systems are pretty sweet.
